I got drawn for both. I can only go to one. Which would yall reccomend?

Bastrop is a friday, Saturday, and Sunday so it would work best for me but if Government Canyon is much better then I'd consider it.

It's for gun deer antlerless/spike.

I've never won any of these. Can I shoot 3 doe? Or 3 spikes? Or any combination?

Are there many exotics?

Two draws, that's crazy. Sixteen years without being drawn.

Thats awesome! I think Government Canyon is new for this year. The hunt details should tell you what the bag limits are. When is the registration deadline?

Government canyon has a higher deer density. Bastrop had the fire a few years ago, lots of new regrowth, probably more to eat, so less likely to see as much movement, IMO.

Government Canyon hasn't been hunted for deer only hogs by a chosen few!
I'd go with GC you should have a better chance at some good deer.

I live 10 minutes away. Seems to be plenty of deer. I've even heard they're seeing some Axis, but I don't know how reliable that info is.

That means that someone that didnt get drawn could have.
If no one shows up for a stand by just a wasted draw.
Sound kinda greedy, do the MATH ...JMO

I won't pay for one of the $80 permits so they will do a second draw. Someone will get it then. So it's not wasted.

That's a head scratcher for sure! I thought that once drawn for a hunt your name would be kicked out of the system.
Guess not, so you can enter as many hunts as you like?
I guess after all these years they still haven't worked out the bugs!

More than likely it will go to a standby hunter the day of the hunt, so technically no it won't be wasted.

This year is the first year you can enter more than one hunt for each category, before it was a disqualifier. If you don't pay for your hunt by the deadline (oct 13th I think) there is a second round drawing for all of the unpaid spots. only then if someone who paid doesn't show up, a standby hunter (if the area allows it) can go.

Yes, it will go to the second drawing. On all of mine if states "pending second draw" So in all honesty it might go to someone who did not get drawn in first round = good! I live in Bastrop and there are tons of deer on my place (I bow hunt my back pasture) But it is completely different terrain over at the park and the park was ravaged by the fire. BSP was hit the hardest of all the areas around. I can't say how the growth is where the hunt will be, but I see the areas of the park visible from the highway and it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie it's so bleak.

not the first case. Just read on another board of someone getting drawn on 3 hunts this year.. This is only my second year to submit and nothing yet.. I would think that with one draw in the season there might be a stipulation.. any case.. some are very lucky indeed..

I guess they figured it will give those who sign up a better chance, but then there are still people who haven't been drawn for a hunt in years, and possibly still not get drawn while some get drawn for multiple hunts.....Luck of the draw! confused2
